your best bet is to search at sourceforge.net for Lib3DS. It can load practically all 3ds files. It even has an OpenGL example program.

The specs of the 3DS file format are there http://www.dcs.ed.ac.uk/home/mxr/gfx/3d/3DS.spec

You can roll your own object loader :D

Ok, just kidding, you''re better off with a library :D
